This post is sponsored by Hoover, however all opinions are 100% my own! Childhood Chores are a big area of growth for our children and help emphasize responsibility and the importance of hard work. I’m sharing how we use the new Hoover OnePWR products to teach our kids how to clean!
They always tell you parenting is hard, but when that first baby is sitting so delicately inside your stomach with tiny little flutters you think to yourself “this will be easy, I’m going to love my baby and teacher them how to be sweet human beings”. Yes… you will be able to teach them to be sweet human beings, however they will also teach YOU how difficult kids can really be.
No two kids are the same and they don’t come with an instruction manual. Yet sometimes you run across an article where women who have mothered for years can’t really give you advice, but kinda sorta talk about what might possibly work for your kids because it works 10% of the time for her own. If you don’t understand that statement… you will as soon as your kids can talk. ;) So today, let’s talk about childhood chores and how important they are!
Chores for Kids with Hoover OnePWR
There have been times in my life when I have been on point with chore charts and all the organized things I can possibly do to set up a successful day for my kids. Then there are times that we are literally all running around with our heads cut off. I’m not naturally organized and I’ve accepted that. But that doesn’t mean I have to stop trying or that our schedule can’t be adaptable. I like to think that since we aren’t an organized family, I’m teaching my kids adaptability. When it comes to chores I always do my best to be consistent. The key is to never give up even if you get off course! The most exciting thing about cleaning chores specifically for my kids is when we get new toys to clean with!
Hoover sent us a few of their new products from the Hoover ONEPWR line and I’m going to show you how we incorporate these into our chore/clean up routine!
Hard Floor Cleaner | Vacuum and Mop in ONE
One of the easiest things for my kids to do is vacuum. Stick vac‘s are a great way for kids to clean, but something exciting that’s included in the ONEPWR line is the ONEPWR FloorMate JET Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner. This allows my kids to vacuum while washing for a one-step clean with cord-free convenience.
For example you can vacuum up and clean spilled cereal at the same time. And this Hard Floor Cleaner is safe for use on hardwoods, tile, laminate, and can even refresh area rugs, making it a great option for the whole family to utilize! My kids absolutely love being able to clean up messes like this in one simple step. And did I mention you can use this tool to give your rugs a little refresh?? Winning!
Chores for Older Kids
My son is finally old enough to start using him for some outdoor chores. He’s already mowing, and now with the Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Blower he’s helping keep all our outdoor surfaces clean. It can get pretty windy here in the midwest and it always feels like our porches and patios are getting dirty, so we blow them off regularly. This is an example of great chore for kids. It doesn’t have to be done perfectly, yet teaches them how to work, plus there’s nothing wrong with having a little fun with your chore ;).
This Cordless Blower is easy to hold with it’s Ergonomic Handle Design, and battery operation. It’s capable of cleaning larger hard surfaces and yards. With it’s integrated dried leaf scraper it’s the perfect yard tool for the Fall!
And just a little tip… a Cordless Blower is a fantastic way to clean off any fans. Take them outside and just watch the dust fly off! It’s oddly satisfying.
Chores for Young Kids
We’ve been doing lots of remodeling lately and my youngest loves to help. He’s by far my hardest worker and loves being given jobs. He’s not quite old enough for some of the chores, but one of his favorites is holding the shop vac for us during demo. We’ve been working specifically on our front porch and he’s always finding a way to help out. The ONEPWR High-Capactiy Wet/Dry Vac is so easy for him to pull around with the No-Tip Wheel Design featuring a 360-degree mobility and NO CORDS!
These are just a few ways we’ve been utilizing our new Hoover ONEPWR Products! But there’s so many more options. Be sure and check out their full line! Is there anything you want to learn more about? Shop the links below for a full description!
